Kirk Daffner, MD, Chief, Division of Cognitive and Behavioral Neurology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), explains what changes people can expect in their cognitive abilities as they grow older and what steps they can take to promote cognitive health throughout life.
The Division of Cognitive and Behavioral Neurology, composed of specialists in behavioral neurology, neuropsychiatry, geriatric psychiatry, neuropsychology, and social work, offers care for patients experiencing difficulties with cognition, emotion, perception, or behavior as a result of neurologic disorders such as Alzheimer disease or other types of dementia, cerebrovascular disease, Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders, head trauma, attentional disorders, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and tumor.
The Division has considerable expertise in the diagnosis and management of patients with cognitive difficulties, offering state-of-the-art diagnostic workups and treatment of all forms of dementia and mild cognitive impairment, including Alzheimer’s disease, to assist patients and families in determining whether changes in cognition are due to normal aging or disease.
